The Bradley Advantage

As an accounting major in the Foster College of Business, you gain a broad business base through courses that give you knowledge to be a business leader. The degree qualifies you to take the Certified Internal Auditor or Certified Management Accounting exams. Courses also prepare you for graduate school or other studies, which are required if you want to become a certified public accountant. Beyond the classroom, you can explore career opportunities and meet professionals through the Bradley Accounting Club and award-winning Beta Alpha Psi accounting honor society. Bradley’s business programs are accredited by the AACSB, which places them among the world’s top 2 percent of business programs. Additionally, Businessweek ranks Bradley’s business programs among the top 50 in the U.S.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s accounting program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or to pursue a graduate degree. Bradley graduates exceed the CPA exam’s national pass rate, and that routinely leads to job offers before graduation. In recent years, nearly all graduates found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working for companies such as Deloitte, John Deere, PricewaterhouseCoopers, RSM, State Farm and United Airlines.
